Traditional Crafts Day

On Saturday, October 14th, from 12-4pm the History Center will be taken over by traditional crafts of times gone by!  Return to the past and see how old time quilters, bucket makers and paper crafters practiced their art.

From 5-7pm join Pat Quackenbush as he demonstrates 5000 Years of
Beer Making. You can taste what the Egyptians used 3000 years ago and
many other older drinks. You’ll love tasting your way through the centuries! (Admission to the History Center is required to attend this part of the event.)

This event will be held both in the parking lot and in the exhibit halls. Access to the parking lot displays will be free and if visitors would like to go into the exhibits, entrance fees are; Members of SEOHC free, Adults $7, Seniors $5, Youth 12-18 $5, kids under 12, free.

Ever want to learn how to play the spoons? Here’s your chance! Our Museum Coordinator, Bosha Green will be on hand to instruct you in the fun art of percussion using two spoons. Appalachian music has many traditions, and playing the spoons is a great way to get that rhythm going!                            https://i1.wp.com/www.niederelbe.de/spoons12.jpg?resize=162%2C243
